”Yesterday Sunday, 16, February 2020 is one day too I will hardly forget in my life. A phone call came in, I picked and the next thing I heard was Inspector Ibrahim Mitra is shot dead by bandits at Bangi. I almost drop my phone in shock.

“Mitra is one Finest Police Officer that I have come very close to. Very professional, articulate unbiased and intelligent.

“Last week, when we spoke he told me that he was redeployed to that Bandits infested area of Bangi, all I do was to prayed to God to protect him.

“Then yesterday’s news. I felt highly devastated. I felt cheated. I felt abandoned. For those of us who live in Minna and knew how he was controlling the criminals within the Tundun Wada Area will know of his professionalism.

“May the soul of Inspector Ibrahim Mitra rest in peace.
